We have recently returned from this resort and would like to present a realistic view of our holiday. PROS The resort is small & intimate (which is why we chose it) - if you like huge, brash 5 star hotels where you are a room number and not a name then Oualie is definitely not for you. Whilst some of... More

You described our resort very accurately except for the bit about the Owner playing guitar very professionally! Tuesday night jam sessions are a lot of fun and often guests bring their own instruments and join in. Chef Gary is working on a new rotating menu to bring more variety, particularly for our UK guests who typically stay for 14 nights.... More

Two week break booked as an indulgence & a get away from it all, together with entry into the Cross Channel Swim over Easter.

We are delighted that you loved the fun, barefoot Caribbean ambiance that is the essence of Oualie Beach Resort. Please book early for the 2017 swim so that you dont have to get moved again by BA to one of the more formal plantation hotels. Always book your water taxi transfers directly with the ladies at Oualie. More

You booked through an online tour operator subject to their no show and cancellation policies. Whenever possible I recommend that you always book directly with our Resort in which case we would have had the flexibility to apply your deposit to a future stay. Please email me directly and I will see if we can salvage the situation for you. More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Oualie Beach Resort. People just need to be aware that this is a very laid-back place with simple beach cottages literally right on the water. We had a deluxe room which was a little duplex cottage on the beach. Queen size bed, screened in porch, tiny bathroom. This is not a fancy place,... More

Before coming to Oualie we read many reviews like any wise traveller would. We noted the good, and the not so good, but still chose to book here as what was coming across to us was that the Hotel may have lacked in polish it made up for in Character and charm. And this reflects our experience nicely. Sure, the... More

You summed up the essence of Oualie Beach perfectly. Yes we have the best beach in our Federation but what really makes Oualie stand out is the genuine friendliness of our staff.

The owners / management and staff were very helpful and always went that extra mile. The food was exceptional and we had a wonderful time. Beach was lovely and evening entertainment was good. The room was nice and relaxing and housekeeping were fantastic.
